Willow Morning

Willow Morning brings together three musical styles and talents under one name. Jamie Fóta describes her songs as "sort of a melting-pot fusion of everyone she's ever liked." Jamie has been creating and performing a body of original work, telling the truth of her experiences as a woman through music. Her music is a unique expression of affirmation, spirituality, romance, politics and playfulness, ranging in style from New Folk to Light Rock. She has been recognized widely in the genre of Women's Music, in which she has pockets of fervent fans throughout the United States and in several other countries. Fóta has a diverse and energetic sound; the variety of styles ensures that the music touches all of her listeners.

Even as a pre-teenager, Ty Chanson's vocal and (self-taught) 12 string guitar talents, shone through. People stopped and took notice of her rich mezzo-soprano voice in her high school vocal arts ensemble. Ty went on to perform in night clubs, on college campuses and military bases in the 1980s. She has also been a "video jockey" on live country music television. Ty's songs will never tell the same story twice because she's never lived the same story twice! From customer service representative to music director, from school bus driver to horse groomer; from lighting and sound technician to animal health technician; Her lyrics are as varied as her life.

Marcia Gallas was a natural-born drummer, according to her parents. Her earliest percussion influence was classical (Bizet). From playing pop-rock in grade school to embracing big-band jazz drumming at age 13, Marcia went on to study as many genres as she could sink her teeth into. Gallas has played at numerous music festivals, for lyric opera companies, choirs, bands and orchestras. She has managed an orchestra, played in the orchestra pits for musical theatre and loves when the opportunity comes along to play timpani! She has been lauded for her versatility as well as her sensitivity as a drummer and a percussionist.

These three women have joined together to create a unique and compelling sound that will make you stop, listen and want to join in!
